Culture and Community Responsive Training


NNCA's Culture and Community Responsive Training (CCRT) workshop assists organisations of all shapes and sizes to establish a baseline understanding of Aboriginal culture, history and community.

Many organisations have established Reconciliation Action - a practical plan of action designed to create social change for Australia's First Nations people.

NNCA's CCRT workshop can be a helpful starting point for organisations who have begun (or are about to begin) a pathway to reconciliation.

Who CCRT is for

CCRT is appropriate for any group that has had limited or no introduction to Aboriginal people and culture. The program also incorporates high level engagement and awareness strategies for the more advanced organisations.

The workshop is adaptable and has been delivered in a variety of settings and age groups from schools to corporate environments. It is designed to create a framework for establishing strong relationships, enhanced understanding, and respect for Aboriginal culture. In fostering these principles, our aim is to assist organisations to transform good intentions into action on their journey towards reconciliation.


CCRT is a 4 hour workshop, held in a classroom format with a twist of cultural elements including Yidaki Story performance (didgeridoo). Catering options are also available.

It takes participants through three core components of Aboriginal culture, plus an overview on understanding and engaging in key aspects of community.

Workshops are coordinated by NNCA's director and lead facilitator Dwayne 'Naja' Bannon-Harrison.


Participants can expect to come away from the workshops with a better understanding of Aboriginal people, history and culture in a modern context.

For organisations, NNCA can also work with you to align with broader strategic goals which could include employment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in your workplace, or fostering of greater awareness and cultural inclusion.
